The Anchor Bend is actually a hitch: it is used for attaching a rope to an object, such as an anchor ring. It can hold rather heavy loads and doesn’t jam under strain. That is why it has always been a traditional knot for tying an anchor line to an anchor. For additional security pull the knot tight or seize the ends with a twine. ABoK #1723, #1841

Step 1: Pass the rope through the anchor ring from behind.

Step 2: Pass through anchor ring once more in the same direction.

Step 3: Continue under the standing part and through the 2 loops.

Step 4: Pass under the standing part, then over it through the loop, making a half hitch.

Step 5: Seize the ends with a twine and tighten the knot.

Step 6: The Anchor Bend is complete.
